An Elgin road was shut yesterday as a new footbridge leading to Moray Sports Centre was installed.
Linkwood Road was shut across from the distillery as workers put in the crossing as part of the £9million sports development, which is due to open next month.
The centre features a gym, indoor cycling room and yoga studio as well as a cafe and restaurant capable of seating 140.
The crossing, installed by Springfield, has been put in to create a safe and easy way to walk or cycle to the centre once it opens on July 1.
Located in the south of Elgin, the Moray Sports Centre is to become one of the biggest sporting venues in the north-east of Scotland.
It will play host to the World Karate Commission’s (WKC) Scottish championships, beating off stiff competition from other established facilities.
Angela Norrie, fundraising and sponsorship manager at Moray Sports Centre, is pleased at how much progress has been made.
She said: “I think the progress to date has been amazing, the centre is taking shape very quickly and the opportunities that it will bring when we open our doors are going to be incredible as well.
“Our venue will be for participating, we are going to be able to compete, we can hold our own local events and also bring others into our community as well.”
Linkwood Road from Dunkinty to the sports centre entrance will also be shut from next Monday to Friday to allow for road surfacing works.
A diversion will be put in place via Reiket Lane for anyone travelling on that route.
